The Wolverine (2013)


Hugh Jackman

Directed by James Mangold

Wolverine is a top class Marvel character that can have numerous movies based on him, and still many will not get tired of queuing up to go see it. In my case though, as this is the 6thtime we get to see Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) in claws – it is starting to get old, since X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) the action has been somehow flattened, taking the back sit as the producers are making room for more drama, which may be welcomed by some and disliked by others (namely me).

This movie is far better than the last time we saw Wolverine headline the X-Men franchise, but not as good as you would have wanted a Wolverine movie to be. The film is based on a 1982 limited comic series Wolverine by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller.
I believe 20th Century Fox (the owners of the X-Men rights) should just sit up and try to make these movies have more action and I do hope, that the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) which will be directed by Bryan Singer (he directed X-Men (2000) and X2 (2003)), will be more enjoyable and have more engaging action than its predecessors.
This new addition to the list of Wolverine based movies is not a grand master as I have said, but I assure you that the final scenes of the movie are captivating enough to go see it. It will make you sit up as you watch Wolverine come to accept who he is “a mutant” as he had to take on a mechanical samurai giant which is trying to suck out his healing powers.
All this began when Wolverine found himself stripped of his immortality as he visits Japan to see an old acquaintance, whose life he saved earlier on in the movie.

Ironically for me, everything that led to the grand ending is just too dull and too emotional intended to be worth the time that I put into it. The only good thing about the movie is that it follows the events of the last x-men movie, where Wolverine killed off Jean Grey in X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), cause after Sony decided to do a reboot in other to keep the Spiderman franchise, I thought 20th Century Fox will do same.

Although the acting is very well done, and the effects well-tuned, for me this is an once is enough movie, if I miss anything and you want to tell me about it, I will search for a YouTube clip of it or just let it go.

Here is another reason why Marvel should keep trying to get their franchises back.
